Regional Influence: Sprat

Location: The North Pacific



Population6.108 billion



The Republic of Clistane is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.108 billion Clistaneans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andena. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Clistanean economy, worth 593 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,122 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Most people learn to drive on crash courses, no-one bats an eye when 'really good platonic friends' of the same sex hold hands in Clistane, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and the armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clistane's national animal is the Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Clistane is ranked 168,990th in the world and 7,288th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -123.99 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
